This Week - Beverly - Somerville - West Acton

Dear AdventuRiders,

Even though Monday is a school holiday, I have scheduled an awesome ride! It's not fully "cooked", so there may be a bit more adventure than usual, but the North Shore from Beverly to Magnolia is tough to be anything but magnificent!

Our starting point is the same soccer field in Beverly as the Salem ride and it is still PortaPotty equipped (as of today at least). We will also revisit Lynch Park before heading north to Gloucester. We will stop at a bunch of beaches, including Singing Beach in Manchester-By-The-Sea, on the way.

I haven't figured out lunch yet, but I think we will find a place in Beverly after the ride, so bring a snack to refresh yourself along the way.
